The Art of Negotiation
• A man was sizing up God by asking, “God, how
long is a million years to you?” God said, “A
million years is like a second.” Then the man
asked, “How much is a million dollars to you?
God said, “A million dollars is like a penny.” The
man smiled and said, “Could you spare me a
penny? God smiled back and said, “Sure, just
wait a second.”

OPWDD and CMS Negotiations
• It is about:
• Time &
• Money
• But more about:
• Sustainability &
• Adaptability

3 DRIVING FACTORS FOR CHANGE
1. The sustainability factor - how do we sustain
appropriate service provision within fiscal realities?
2. The relevancy factor - are the services we currently
offer those that families and individuals coming into
our service system seeking?
3. The compliance factor - in light of Olmstead and
recent federal decisions on ADA, will the menu of
service options we provide allow us to meet the
goals of Olmstead and federal requirements?

OPWDD Transformation
As OPWDD pursued development of the People First
Waiver, we worked with CMS to define priority
elements of system transformation:
 Expanding opportunities and supports for
EMPLOYMENT
 Expanding COMMUNITY SERVICE OPTIONS –
supportive housing, community-based services
 Expanding SELF DIRECTION options
 OLMSTEAD PLAN- Creating opportunities for people
to move from institutions to integrated settings
Transformation Documents
 “Putting People First: OPWDD’s Road to
Reform” – comprehensive review of system reforms
recently achieved and underway
 “The OPWDD Transformation Agreement”
Appendix H of the DRAFT NYS Partnership
Plan Amendment (DOH 1115 Waiver)Articulates clear commitments for achieving
ambitious goals for system reform and service
delivery

MANAGED CARE
Managed care places special emphasis on
the appropriate use of ambulatory and
inpatient settings, evidence-based
decision making, cost-effective diagnosis
and treatment, population-based
planning, and health promotion and
disease prevention.

Assumptions with managed care
• If you keep people healthy, you reduce costs
• If you only give people what they need (as
opposed to what they want), you can reduce
costs
• If you make providers and patients aware of
costs, they will be more prudent in their use of
services
CARE MANAGEMENT AND MANAGED
CARE
• Concepts of care management are rooted in
the development of managed care principles
• Care Management has a focus on the best
outcomes for individuals served
• Managed Care’s history has had a focus on
cost containment
• Each rely on concepts of health promotion
and disease prevention
Where does Person Centered
Planning Fit In?
• Since much of the Medicaid cost for those
with long term care needs is outside of
traditional health care, the emphasis needs to
be on planning for all aspects of the individual
needs for each person enrolled in a managed
care plan
Variations in Managed Care Strategies
for those with LTC Needs
• 1. Population already has complex medical
and social needs
• 2. Due to these needs utilization of resources
including specialty care is often quite
extensive
• 3. Cost for services most often tied into daily
living needs, including housing and day
activities in addition to medical needs
Integrated Care is a Must
• To really provide comprehensive Person
Centered planning and care to the DD
population, there is a need to integrate good
care coordination that includes all aspects of
medical, behavioral and social needs of the
individual

Managed Care Legislation
 The NYS legislature recently passed new managed care
legislation that authorizes delivery of specialized
developmental disabilities services through a managed care
structure.
 The People First Waiver, when approved by CMS, will
authorize the operation of DISCOs; OPWDD is currently
focusing on establishing initial DISCOs.
 OPWDD will request additional authority from CMS to initiate
delivery of specialized developmental disabilities services
through managed long-term care (MLTC) plans and HMOs and
solicit those applicants through separate actions.
17
DISCOs
 Governed by:
Public Health Law Article 44,
Mental Hygiene Law § 13.40
Social Services Law §364-j
federal regulations at 42 CFR Part 438
 Will have modified reserve requirements to facilitate start-up.
 Must be controlled by one or more non-profit organizations with
experience providing or coordinating health and long-term care
services to people with IDD.
 Applications will be reviewed for their capacity to fulfill all
requirements.
 Prior to operation, OPWDD will review the DISCO’s readiness to
enroll members and coordinate care.
MLTC or Mainstream Managed Care
 Organizations do not need to be controlled by nonprofit.
 Same standards will apply for quality assurance,
grievances and appeals, informed choice, personcentered planning, and marketing.
 Must have ability to provide or coordinate services for
people with developmental disabilities (either on its own
or by affiliation with another entity with experience) and
oversee or implement the coordination and planning of
developmental disabilities services.
